Free books!

The last few months, I have started going out on Saturday mornings whenever I am free. 
There is a man that goes to my church that runs a table full of free Christian literature. He goes almost every Saturday morning and sits out by an old restaurant. This really drew me in. I decided to go one day and liked it enough to go back again and again. Sometimes there are hardly any people that come, but other times, we get lots of people that stop by.
For the most part, the man I go with does most of the talking, but I had a really cool experience a few weeks ago. I do talk to people some, but this time, I was really the only one doing the talking. A young man came up and was sharing some struggles he was having. It meant a lot to me for him to share and let me talk to him. I gave him a few pamphlets and stuffs, and he went on his way. This would have made my whole day, but later, we found the pamphlets in a restroom next door. Even though he left these which seemed really discouraging, I hope that God was able to somehow use me in this man's life as an encouragement.
So there you have it. That is what I do almost every Saturday morning unless I have something else going on. It has been a cool thing to do, and I hope that I will be able to use what I am learning through this opportunity in my life more and more. :-)
